Very violent but at least we can laugh occasionally
8 January 2015 | by vchimpanzeeSee all my reviews

At the start of the movie, Jennifer walks into the building housing the offices of a company that deals with the U.S. government. In just minutes, at least 10 people die. It's probably 11, because that's the total given by Dodd as he talks to his friend Paul while a woman does yoga in a park.

Powers (I hope that's right) is being interrogated in blue and white. That's like black and white, only blue. Most of the rest of the movie is flashbacks explaining what Powers is saying.

Paul was a government hit man who has killed many people but he does not currently own a gun. He rents one when he needs one, and he practices frequently.

There is a disk that contains vital information. Lots of people want it, including North Korean big shot Karl Kim, and are willing to kill for it. Eight people die, and Paul is the prime suspect. While he later admits to killing the people, he says he had to, as if it were self-defense. Paul is hurt and on the run, and Stacia, an divorced ER nurse who just worked a double shift, finds him behind a dumpster. He takes her hostage. Later, he visits Arlo and finds out more information. There is more shooting, and Arlo and Paul return to Stacia's place.

Altman is an important government agent who might be corrupt. He is quite serious and demanding but also likes to have fun with women. Tony is his "point man" but he doesn't seem to be doing a very good job.

More people get shot.

My main incentive to watch this was seeing Bull from Night Court in a different kind of role. He is pretty good, but not as moral as I am used to.

The scenes with Paul and Arlo were sometimes funny, especially with Stacia. Dodd was a good character too.

This isn't my kind of movie, and I can't say whether it is any good or not. I was just glad when it was over and certain people survived. And no, not everyone we like is going to survive.
